Route Description for Cheatham Grove Trail

The Cheatham Grove Trail boasts a magical experience. Immerse yourself in a sea of redwoods, admiring the abundance of flora that bound the looming trees. Currently, this route remains a fairly hidden secret, but it is almost too amazing not to share—maybe we will just keep this one between us? Beautiful, easy-going, and quick—this route boasts the ideal opportunity to get out of the car and stretch your legs. We absolutely love this trek, and you will too.

Setting out from the trailhead, the Cheatham Grove Trail ventures east into the grove. Soon after your departure, you will confront a junction—veer left here. Now hiking northeast, you will be guided amongst looming redwoods and beneath arches cloaked in green moss. You will be mesmerized by the enchanting scene as you track around the circuit. Eventually, the path will divert you west, heading back to the trailhead.

Soon, the traffic sounds will increase, signaling you are nearing the end of the adventure. Ultimately you will be guided back to the trailhead and parking lot.
